Re: EJC (C-Compiler) experiments

Morning ql_freak. A nice little calculator there, and well done on figuring it all out in the end. userin = gets(userinbuf); Most people I know strongly advise against using gets() for the simple reason that it leaves one susceptable to a buffer overflow.

Re: Forum with infos about online auctions

It would be nice to have a separate topic with info about online auctions. I would have missed the boxed QL + printer if not mentioned in the 700E QL thread. Now I will miss it because of the price ... And God, I want a QL printer! Drop RobHeaton a PM and request a new forum. That should work. Chee...

All the micro SD cards I've bought since 2012, RasperryPi year, have come with an SD card adaptor. I suspect this will continue - if not, I have quite a few!

Re: 700 Euros for a boxed QL \o/
